World Class Queens of California: Tell us about your pageant history. I started pageants in 1993 in the Miss Pahrump pageant. My mom entered me, and I had to clue what I was doing. I got 2nd Runner-Up and I was hooked! I loved and and have continued to do pageants since then. World Class Queens of California: What inspired you to do your first pageant? My mother entered me and I had no idea what it was. I guess she thought I might enjoy it. She was right! World Class Queens of California: Why did you decide to become World Class Ambassador? I felt like I could really promote the World Class beauty Queen's brand through all my appearances and my volunteer work. World Class Queens of California: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. My 2 main causes are Autism Awareness and Childhood Education. Autism is near and dear to me. My son has Autism, so the challenges that come with raising a child with Autism are something that no one can prepare you for. But I make it a mission to talk to anyone about getting the proper help and getting early childhood intervention, because statistically, your child is better off, the sooner you can get it help. Even if you just only suspect something is "off", you need to get tested right away, because even if they are "normal", you will have peace of mind, but if they need help, you can get it right away. I personally, go to schools to educate young children when I'm asked to. I read them children's stories about Autism and being different. I also go to Special Need's classes and read to them, and encourage them and let them know that we are all different but equal. I also volunteer to go to children with Autism's birthday parties, in my area, dressed as a Princess, to brighten the child's day and help them have the best party I can. I volunteer for a local organizationcalled FAAN. (Familes Advocating for Autism Now). I help with fund raisers at winery's and I help at events, suck has movie screenings, where I go dressed as a Princess, like the screening of Beauty and the Beast. The kids really love that. I also find that since I'm around children a lot, I care deeply about getting children a proper education. I read at my son's school every march for their Read-A-Thon. I volunteer for the book fair. I am in my son's school, volunteering at least once a week, but I also have volunteered for the Humboldt First Five program, which helps make sure children 5 and under are being read to and have access to books. I also volunteer for the Swat Relief Initiative ( http://swatreliefinitiative.org) . Princess Zebu Jilani of Pakistan heads up this organization that builds schools in rural Pakistan for children. I also volunteer countless hours as a Cub Scout leader. World Class Queens of California: What appearances have you done with your ambassador title? I have volunteered at Granada Nursing Home. I was a volunteer bell ringer for the Salvation Army over Christmas. I was a volunteer for the Lion's Club's Winter Express, that lets under privileged children shop for their families for Christmas. I have volunteered at my son's school, Pacific Union, to teach kids how to make apple sauce. I made an appearance at the Humboldt County Fair. I also made an appearance in Oregon. I volunteered for the Breast and GYN Project (http://bghp.org/).
World Class Queens of California: What are some of your achievements? I have 60+ beauty pageant titles. I have been selected as a State Farm Good Neighbor recipient. I have received the Presidential Service Award, bronze level in 2017 and Silver level 2018. I have received Den Leader recognition for my son's Cub Scout Den. I have won many ribbon's for baking in the Humboldt County fair, the Redwood Acre fair and the Del-Norte County fair. I also won 3rd place for my photography in the Humboldt County fair, and have been recognized by the Red Cross. World Class Queens of California: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? It means so much more than just outward beauty. It means I have a platform to change the world! People will listen when I speak. People will hold me in high regards and with that, I'm able to help so many others. I think that is beautiful. World Class Queens of California: How did competing in pageants helped your life? It has given me self confidence about speaking in public, and about how to act under the public eye. It has helped with getting my nerves under control, so I co go out and be on a public stage. World Class Queens of California: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? It has helped me a great deal with self esteem. I am able to talk to a classroom full of kids, or a stadium full of adults, with confidence. If I'm confident in my self, others are confident in me too. I has help with body image as well, because when you are up in front of people, there is no room to second guess your body image, so the more you get up on stage, the more you can tackle being in front of people in real world situations. World Class Queens of California: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? It feels great! I love being an inspiration! I will gladly take girls under my wing and pass on any knowledge to them! All girls need someone to look up to. World Class Queens of California: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? To practice in the actual shoes you are going to wear. You must practice in them, until they feel natural on your feet. World Class Queens of California: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? To get a dress for your body type. Nothing too revealing. And get a color that looks good on you. World Class Queens of California: What are your tips for winning interview? My tip is to practice a little meditation and slowing your heart rate down, so you can focus on the question. Then repeat the question back in your answer, to make sure you have time to process the question. World Class Queens of California: What are your plans for 2019 as a Ambassador? To travel and promote the title as much as I can. I really love volunteering and promoting World Class beauty Queens! World Class Queens of California: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want my son to say "Hey, my mom was a good person, and she did all she could to not just whine about the world, but to change it." I also want him to know I am his champion and I will never stop trying to educate the public about Autism, because I feel like the more people that are aware, the better the world is for my son.
